New Year’s Resolutions (Part Three)

I will work on the things that are weak,

Until they become the strengths I seek,

I don’t want to accept any goal left incomplete,

I’ll urge opportunity to knock twice so I can repeat,  

I’ll risk my heart and be vulnerable in every way,

For love not spent shrivels a little each day,

And my fragile heart will never fully learn,

Unless it loves again after it’s been burned,

I want to prepare for the challenges I face,

Set my targets higher, make steady my pace,

Sometimes I’ll be punctual, sometimes some doubt,

Make an entrance at celebrations and just stand out,

I’ll put my priorities in order just the way it seems,

Using time and perspective to realize my dreams.

  2. Dan, I read all three parts of New Year’s Resolutions and they all resonated with me. Fear, starting the new year fresh, being open to give and receive love. Your sentiments in each piece are heartwarming. Thank you so much for sharing. You’ve given me plenty to think about.

    Happy New Year!

    • Sorry about that. I was just trying to think of changes for me. I’m sure you don’t have as many challenges. BTW I like your posts.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

    • So many improvements to be made and so little time. How long do you think it will take me to be perfect?

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

    • I’m still learning and will be learning until I die. I learn much from others, like yourself, and appreciate what you offer.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!
